Ur Close But Ur Not There... - Poem by MaddiiAnne O'Leary

You stand there;
Like you want to be near me...
But your actions;
They tell me you don't...

Your eyes tell me;
Tell me that you care...
But your words;
They tell me that you don't...

Your stance tells me;
Tells me that you're comfortable...
But your body language;
That tells me you want to run from me...

You stand there;
Stand there as if you want to be close...
But the emotions that cross your face;
They tell me that you're not there in the present;
You're in the past instead...
